The men and women's tennis teams went 4-0 over the past week with wins over Eastern Kentucky, UPUI and Butler.

The women's team defeated Eastern Kentucky 5-2.

Sophomore Allyson Westling had a particularly strong performance, losing only two games in her match. The women's team beat IUPUI on Saturday 6-1. Juniors Katie

Pleiman and Kally Alkire led the team by winning their doubles

match 8-2. Westling did not lose a single game in her match.

"The win over EKU was a good one. They're a good team

and will be in the mix to win their conference tournament," head coach Eric Toth said. The men's team began the week

by sweeping Butler 7-0. Junior Brandon MacDonald had the most impressive match of the day, dropping only one game

during the match. The men's team did not lose a single set to Butler. "Butler is a good program and it being a road match made it more of a challenge," Toth said. Sophomore Jimmy Roebker led the team with a score of 6-1 in both sets.

Both teams will be in Boca Raton, Fla. to face Florida Atlantic

University today.
